Drive only if it is absolutely necessary. When traveling drive during daylight hours and keep others informed of your schedule and planned destination. Have a safety kit in the vehicle. This would include a shovel, windshield scraper and small broom or brush, working flashlight, battery powered radio, water, snacks or food items, emergency road flares and blankets. Keep the gas tank full to help prevent gas line freezing. Keep extra hats, gloves as well as a sweater or coat in the car.
